By the time you get sun burned it's usually too late. So, what should you do when you receive painful sunburning at the beach? If you're at a resort you can probably pick up Aloe Vera cream or lotion at a beauty shop or pharmacy. If you're on your own, try a few home made remedies: one of the simplest, believe it or not is to apply oatmeal on the burned areas. Lie down, put it on and try not to move. Leave it on over night if possible. Rinse off the oatmeal with cool water in the morning. Or apply a thick layer of unctuosity humidifying cream on the areas of your body that suffered the most from sunburning. Repeat the procedure 2-3 times. Put a layer of unctuosity nutritious cream under the eyes. And continue applying oatmeal on the rest of your body.
Wash your face later with cold water. Try greasing your face and body with cosmetic milk or cream. When it is absorbed in a skin, grease the sunburning places with a nutritious cream. Acetaminophen or ibuprofen usage can help, too (also you can apply a soothing lotion in this kind of case).
Excessive sunburning can cause some people to develop red veins on their face. This is an expansion of blood vessels, which, unfortunately, does not go away. This can also be caused by frostbite. In this case only the doctor can help, having registered treatment by coagulation.
Some other good advice is to try and drink less coffee and alcohol during the hot summer months. Replace coffee with carrot juice, and make a mask of grated carrots for your face. Regular consumption of carrot juice, three times a day and half a glass before eating will improve your complexion and give you a better tan and less sun burning. Carrot juice is stock full of vitamins and is great for your stomach, kidneys and intestines.
Wipe the face, the neck and the shoulders with a tampon moistened in carrot juice. Then rub the skin with a little cosmetic milk, a humidifying cream or oil. It is possible to perform this procedure not only during summer season, but also in the spring, that perfectly acts on a skin, much better than most of the costly oil for sun burning. Of course you can also apply a soothing lotion.
Sunstroke comes as a result of overheating on your head (actually through stress on the nape of the neck). Therefore, the brain centers are affected. Attributes of sunstroke are dizziness, the quickened palpitation, rough, frequent breath, and sometimes vomiting. The face gets red. Therefore the head should be lifted highly on a pillow. Place a person in the shade; unbutton their clothes to prevent better circulation. Acetaminophen or ibuprofen usage is not recommended.
When the person returns to consciousness, allow him (her) to drink much cold water and put a cold compress on his (her) head. After some time, when the person feels better, it is necessary to sprinkle his (her) face with cold water or maybe have them sniff an ammonia capsule. Try to get strong black coffee or strong tea in the nearest cafe for maintenance of heart activity. And only then contact the doctor.
